You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.


Heb. 12:2


 

2 Looking [aphorao] unto [eis] Jesus [Iesous] the author [archegos] and [kai] finisher [teleiotes] of our faith [pistis]; who [hos] for [anti] the joy [chara] that was set before [prokeimai] him [autos] endured [hupomeno] the cross [stauros], despising [kataphroneo] the shame [aischune], and [te] is set down [kathizo] at [en] the right hand [dexios] of the throne [thronos] of God [theos]. KJV-Interlinear

 

 

2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. NASB



During our run through life, through our spiritual life that is, to whom are we to keep looking? To Christ.


Most folks keep their eyes on themselves, or on the things of this life. We generally keep looking at our self, at the things we have in life. We are preoccupied with everything in life except God, and doctrine.


Our job or our career is important of course, and there is nothing wrong with that. The things we have in life, or the things that we want out of life occupy much of our attention if not all of it. We pursue social activities or hobbies, and again there is nothing wrong with pursuing the things we enjoy in life.


However, our error comes when we exclude God and doctrine from our life. And when we exclude God and doctrine then we, by default, exclude our responsibilities and obligations before God, from our life.


Fixing our eyes on Jesus simply means that we fix our attentions and priorities in life, on the example of Christ, especially His doctrine.


Jesus Christ is a living person. Bible doctrine is the written word. Christ lived by and is the manifestation of that which we study and should guide our lives by. Christ is the living word, and doctrine is the written word of God.


Christ is the author and finisher (perfecter) of our spiritual life. He is the author in that He sets the example. He is the originator, the initiator, the beginning of the spiritual realm. Without Christ there would be no Plan of God, no salvation, nothing for us at all in life.


We learn Christ, by means of our daily Bible studies. We bring Christ into our lives by growing up in our spiritual life. We attain spiritual maturity by incorporating Christ, by having Christ in us doctrine in our soul.


Gal. 4:19 Christ formed in you, is the fundamental beginning of your spiritual life.

Eph. 3:16-17 Christ at home in your heart, is the residence of Gods thinking in you.

Phil. 1:20-21 Christ glorified in your body, is the ultimate achievement of spiritual maturity.


Jesus Christ is the only authorized path to God the Father. All religions, all beliefs, all philosophies in human history reject this principle. Even when they speak of Christ but attempt to modify His role in the spiritual realm, they reject Christ.


Jesus Christ is the unique person of the universe. He is both God and man in one body of the person of Jesus Christ. He is unique. There is none like Him. Certainly there are lots of imitators who will come along attempting to distract you from your focus on Christ, but you are able to defeat those distractions if you commit yourself to a daily study of Bible doctrine.


There is one faith, one sacrifice, one path to eternal blessing, and that is through Jesus Christ. There is one spiritual life, and one path to spiritual maturity, and that is through the daily study of Bible doctrine.


1 Cor. 10:1-4

1 For I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 2 and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 3 and all ate the same spiritual food; 4 and all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ. NASB


2 Cor. 3:18

18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit. NASB


Throughout history the path to God has been the same through Christ, by means of Bible doctrine, under the power of the Holy Spirit. Adam followed this course. Moses followed this course. David followed this course. And so it is the same course you are I are to follow in order for us to achieve the same spiritual success.
